Will you reward yourself.... - page 2
Hi everyone. I'm currently taking LPN classes and then I will go on to try to get my ADN. My question is this: Do any of you have an incentive for yourself that you will receive when you graduate?... Read More
Nov 20, '02Joined: May '02; Posts: 86aside from the rewards of having completed my program, earning my degree, and *hopefully* passing my NCLEX exam, i'll be rewarding myself by taking my dream vacation...my friend and i (who will also be graduating about that time) are planning to tour ireland for two weeks...on horseback!
then i'm finally going to buy myself my own horse
......yes, i'm the little girl who lists "pony" on the top of her christmas list every year....i never outgrew it, but "pony" changed to "horse" some years back :roll

That is one of the smaller things though. I really havnt put much thought into anyhing besides a tatoo.
A really nice car maybe!

Like a nice pair of designer jeans for the girls, or a Gameboy for my son....
Just some extras they've always had to forgo in the past....

When I graduate, I am going to read them all, and not have to be able to comprehend or remember any of the information in any of them!!! And there will be no tests over them either!

Time off after graduation before I start work again to hang with the little one and relax...ah...watching cartoons in our pjs til 2pm then taking a nap! :chuckle
Nov 20, '02Joined: Mar '02; Posts: 115I know this isn't practical, but I can't wait to take my daughter into Limited Too and let her pick out whatever she wants, not just one thing from the clearance rack. We are going to take a Disney cruise (hopefully) the second fall after I graduate. I also would love to replace my totally abused furniture! THe list could probably go on for ever.

My boyfriend and I have recently been thinking about getting married and it was mentioned how it would be sort of cool to graduate (which is a morning ceremony for me) and then, since everyone will be there because this was such a HUGE accomplishment for me, that afternoon, we get married to celebrate the end of my degree program and the beginning of our lives together. Hokey? Gimme your thoughts please! :chuckle

Nov 21, '02Joined: Oct '02; Posts: 146Babynurse, that is an excellent idea. And just think of the double gift occasion. lol
I think when/if I graduate, i will take my dh on a loooooooooong vacation. (Mind you, long for us is 2 days bc of the kids) and just stopping all of the worrying. that is gift enough for me!!!
God Bless :hatparty:

I'd never been able to do that before and it still feels good to be able to do it.
